Among the most desirable Italian sports cars of its era, this 1997 Ferrari F355 GTS comes finished in Nero over tan leather, featuring a removable Targa top along with a coveted 6-speed gated manual transmission. The car was sold new in Michigan and spent life in Texas before eventually being acquired by a doctor in Northern California. The car would remain under her care for the next 17 years while driven very sparingly and treated to major documented service. Having recently received another full service in preparation for sale, this stunning F355 currently resides with its seller in Florida where it is now being offered for auction showing just over 22k miles on the odometer.
This F355 comes finished in Nero (nonmetallic black) with a matching removable Targa top, painted brake calipers, and silver 18” 5-spoke wheels dressed in brand-new Continental tires. The wind-tunnel-developed bodywork of the F355 was styled by Pininfarina and features distinctive rear buttresses, a louvered engine cover, pop-up headlights, large side air intakes, and quad exhaust outlets. The finish is described to have been kept in excellent overall condition, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The classic tan leather interior is contrasted by a black upper dashboard, leather steering wheel, and carpet floor mats. The center console features climate and lighting controls, a crossed flag emblem, and a gated manual shifter with a polished metal ball and lever. An aftermarket Alpine head unit is equipped, and the common sticky button issue has been addressed with replacement parts.
This F355 comes equipped with a mid-mounted 3.5L V8 DOHC engine that produces up to 375 HP, driving the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. A collection of records accompanies the sale including an invoice totaling over $25k for major engine-out service in 2015 within the last 1k miles. The seller notes another full service has been recently completed in preparation for the next owner including a compression test, fluid changes, and timing belt replacement.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, factory car covers, service records, and a clean title.
